    Fantastic thread so far, always nice to see a transformation like this! The wood paneling removal was my favorite part !!!

    Yea, in '77 I guess all the 'rage' was to build 8 foot tall rooms around 1500sqft.


    as far as the chair, wellllllll lol, I dunno its one of those things where I had all the intent to drag it back out but......it got covered up hahah



    So... not to many people on here know, but im going threw a custody case for my son (Im actually kicking ass and have temporary full custody right now) so needless to say, most of my money is tied up right now....

    BUT, lol..... last Sunday I had enough of the '70s pimp ass shower/tub combo and started ripping it out the whole bathroom......

    pics will be up soon!


    As always...thanks for looking, keep the comments coming!

    Walking into the master:



    Sink area





    The bath area is pretty much 5 foot by 5 foot





    ITS NOT PINK! ITS SALMON!!!!!



    lol.....


    This is what I started with, so needless to say pretty much anything I do will be a huge improvement.

    My plans are to get rid of the shower/tub combo and put something a tad bit modern in it.

    Today, my son went to his mothers all day (mothers day) so I figured id get the room all cleaned up and ready to start construction

    beat up a good amount of tile



    behind the toilet...smh 40 years ago they built some fucked up shit






    My plan: build a custom shower pan (because I wasnt spending $800 on a shower pan that i wouldnt fit my goals), backer bored everything, tile everything, new toilet, speakers, mood lighting, built in tile shower bench, built in shelves and whatever else i can think of.






    The Shower Pan:

    the shower will be 61x32



    the floor will consist of the base layer of mortar..to establish the slope for proper drainage (1/4 per foot). Then a layer of water proofing membrane, then another thinner layer of mortar, then tile.....

    the water proofing membrane will go up the walls about a foot, so that if there is ever a leak it will drain to the pan then to the shower drain.


    this is where Im at on 5-13-11. It took me a week to get to this point, mostly because i only can work on it an hour or so ad day....




    Any questions, comments, calling me a dumb ass????? LOL and yes the pool is filled in! hahaha :P

    Make sure you clean the mold from behind the tub. Looks like it had probably been leaking for years.

    Have fun! Our last big project was a bathroom... what a project.

    Can't wait to see more progress pictures Certainly can't be any worse than it started. Ours was peach and vomit green.
